Completely thorough. Explained the procedure to us, the parents and also included my daughter who was undergoing the heart procedure. Incredible bedside manner. I hope no one has to ever use him, but if your child needs a heart procedure, he is the man!

I was rather nervous moving to NC and my baby girl having to see another cardiologist after the one she had been seeing for the last 10 years of her life. Dr. Idriss is awesome at what he does and my baby girl loves him just as much as the last.

Dr. Idriss is one of the select few pediatric electrophysiologists in the nation. I would recommend him to anyone requiring this specific sort of knowledge in their care because he is uniquely qualified.
